FOSHAN | Projects & Construction

Foshan is a city on the south-west border of Guangzhou. Local authorities are planning to "merge" the two cities. A result of that plan is the cross city Subway (Guangfo Line) that has open in 2010. Some Asian Games Venues were located in Foshan.

Foshan is the 10th City in China to have subway.

Here some planned and on-going projects.

1. Foshan Lingnang Tiandi 佛山岭南天地

Situated at the centre of Zumiao Donghua Lane of Foshan, "Foshan Lingnan Tiandi" has a planned site area of approximately 650,000 sq.m. with a planned gross floor area of approximately 1.64 million sq.m. To facilitate Foshan’s long-term sustainable development, Shui On Land will preserve Foshan’s tradition as the hometown of Cantonese Opera, pottery art, martial arts and authentic Chinese food, and blend it with fashionable elements and modern facilities for a quality city-core integrated development.

With reference to the successful model of Shanghai Taipingqiao Redevelopment Project, this project will encompass residential and office buildings, as well as retail, hotel, F&B, entertainment, tourism and cultural facilities. Shui On Land will also apply its unique experience in the redevelopment of Shikumen buildings to this project with an aim to preserve and modify the traditional Lingnan-style architectures in Zumiao Donghua Lane. It will showcase a perfect integration of commercial value and historical heritage from the outlook to the cultural ambience.

2. Foshan Dongping New Town (CBD) 佛山东平新城

I really like the lowrise part With all the little homes. But those towers sure as hell look nice too. Looks like another huge project for China.
Build it
